Laycon performs as Dimeji Bankole ties the knot with Aisha, stepdaughter of Kebbi State governor

A former speaker of the House of Representatives Dimeji Bankole married Aisha Shinkafi Saidu on Saturday, 16 January 2021 at a low-key wedding ceremony in Abuja where BBNaija’s Laycon thrilled guests at the event.

Dimeji Bankole had divorced his first wife Olaitan in 2017 making him one of the most sought-after bachelors in Nigeria. Now, he is officially off the market.

Bankole’s new wife, Aisha Shinkafi Saidu is a stepdaughter of Kebbi State governor, Atiku Bagudu. Her mother is the sister to the former Governor of Zamfara State, Alhaji Aliyu Shinkafi.

In line with Islamic beliefs and traditional rites, the two families had held an equally quiet introduction ceremony in Abeokuta, at the Bankole family house.

Governor of Sokoto State, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal, had taken on the role of introducing the groom’s family to the bride’s. The strong political families chose to avoid a large ceremony that will attract a crowd and break COVID-19 regulations.

In addition, reports claim that all present at Dimeji Bankole and Aisha Shinkafi Saidu’s wedding observed the health and safety measures that the National Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) laid down.

Bankole was elected to the House of Representatives on the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) ticket to represent the Abeokuta South Federal Constituency of Ogun State in 2002. He was re-elected in April 2007.

The House elected him Speaker in November 2007. During his tenure, the House of Representatives returned unspent budgeted funds amounting to about 450 billion Naira to the government treasury in 2007.

In March 2018, he emerged as the governorship candidate of the (ADP) Action Democratic Party in Ogun State in advance of the general elections in 2019.

BBnaija 2020 winner Laycon was spotted performing at the wedding on Saturday.
